For serious future thinkers, this book plots changes ahead in our spatial lexicon and speculates to conceive, navigate, and occupy previously unavailable, technological defined landscapes. The author posits that as explorations in cyberspace, molecular and tissue engineering, genetics, and complex systems theories accelerate, they will drastically change our environment, and therefore, our architecture. When space is reevaluated, the process will inevitably lead to a new articulation of architecture in terms of its use, scale of operation, and aesthetic content, opening up exciting new spatial frontiers. In examining the potential of coming technological innovation, the book enables readers to see the interaction of such techniques and the architecture resulting from them. Specifics addressed include algorithmic and hypertextual architectures, spatial procedures in cyber-space, self-replicating and artificially intelligent structures, a new plasticity in buildings, and other provocative issues.

As humans charge up the steep slope of technological innovation, digital age media increasingly shapes our perception of everything—even spiritual matters. The next stage of spiritual development may be the product of a digital interface between our own image of the divine, virtual reality technology that produces real perceptions, and with devices that stimulate areas of the brain associated with spiritual experience. This book explores the influence of digital media on spirituality and the impact of the digital environment on our experience of the spiritual world. The author predicts a future in which digital technology and neuroscience will combine to create a new understanding of the divine.

Digital Poetics celebrates the architectural design exuberance made possible by new digital modelling techniques and fabrication technologies. By presenting an unconventional and original ‘humanistic’ theory of CAD (computer-aided design), the author suggests that beyond the generation of innovative engineering forms, digital design has the potential to affect the wider complex cultural landscape of today in profound ways. The book is linked to a website, which contains a larger selection of images of some featured projects.
